Call quality is fine. We did not face any call drop problem during usage. Notifications are easily detected, but the quality of the speaker could have been better. The headset that comes with the handset is not suitable for listening to songs.

The quad-core chipset played our test videos smoothly. The phone never heated up to troublesome levels even with continuous use. The benchmark results of the Intex Aqua Trend were not spectacular, but that’s usually the case with handsets with such specifications.

We hoped that the Intex Aqua Trend would be able to hide the remaining shortcomings with its performance in the battery department. But this did not happen. The 3000 mAh battery lasted only 9 hours 11 minutes in the video loop test, which is below average. In normal use it will last for a day.

our decision
There is nothing spectacular about the Intex Aqua Trend. Despite being priced at Rs 9,700, it looks very expensive. You will get more beautiful and better feature equipped handsets at the same price. Asus Zenfone 2 Laser and Lenovo K3 Note are better options for you.

The phone has many shortcomings which include mediocre display, average camera and battery performance. The reality is that the handset is very heavy and thick. Talking about the features of the phone, both the SIM slots support 4G. Overall, our suggestion would be that even if you don’t buy this phone, you won’t be missing out on anything special.
